I have never fasted before. But for the next two days, I will. I will fast and pray on behalf of Christian Academy Schools where my son is a student. Although when I first suggested the fast, it did not occur to me that it would be happening right after Thanksgiving weekend, it is in many ways appropriate that it does. The past holiday weekend has been spent feasting in the blessings that God has given us. Now, the next two days will be spent focusing on the sacrifice that we should so willingly make in light of what our Lord has done for us. The sacrifice we should so willingly make but yet, due to our humanness, can be so difficult to make.

On Monday and Tuesday (November 27 and 28), the Christian Academy Schools board has committed to two days of prayer and fasting for the school. This is done in order to bring us into focus and in deeper touch with God as we embark on a 6 – 9 month process of seeking and implementing His ongoing vision for the school. The school has been truly blessed over the years and at this point, with record enrollment and ever-increasing programs, we believe that God is calling the school to that next step of faith and that next bit of growth, all for building His kingdom.

I personally do not believe that a Christian-based education is for everyone. In fact, I believe that we’d be really missing the boat if all Christian students were in Christian schools. However, I do know that it is the right choice for many families and students; it has been for our family. I also believe that many strong Christian leaders of tomorrow are being molded in Christian schools today. That is why the mission of CAS has become so important to me. I know that the school is having an impact on our community (as well as the greater world as our students go on to college and careers) today and will in the future as well.

I will covet your prayers for the school during this time – please pray for the board, the administration and staff, the students and their families, and our larger community. Please pray that, together, we will discover God’s vision for the school and have the faith and courage to pursue it.

Thank you so much.
